Telescope, nice choice, what have you done to expand your community?
Thanks Adian—Telescope has been much better than WordPress, which I've used on previous community projects. The newsletter and transactional emails that come built in are incredibly helpful.
As far as growth—the community has only been open to friends and early adopters of SidePrize until today. So, I don't have much advice to give here. When it comes to communities, building the user base is definitely the most difficult part.
Open to any thoughts on community-building.
I don't know how many of you are interested in fantasy sports, but if you are, I've been working on a DN-esque community. It's built on Telescope, which has been nothing but fantastic.
Would love any feedback, comments or questions you guys have!
Very cool, a DN for fantasy sports. I'm browsing through it right now, seems like it's all related to football. Are you planning to go into different sports?
Good question, the plan is to have posts tagged for separate categories—football, baseball, golf, etc...
I've been waiting to see what sports the community leaned towards before introducing those categories though.
What fantasy sports do you play?
I play football and basketball. But I think the three biggest are those two and baseball.
